“TFA Truth Tour” Exposing Dark Side of Corporate Education Reform

The United Students Against Sweatshops (USAS) has launched a “TFA Truth Tour” to expose the dark side of corporate education reform.  “The tour will visit 15 campuses to expose the truth about TFA: not only does it fail to prepare teachers for the classroom, but it is systematically pushing to replace our system of community public education and replace it with an alternative largely controlled by profit-seeking corporations.”  Each stop will feature a panel of student activists, local teachers, and/or TFA alum.   

Coverage of some of the stops can be found at Macalester College (and here),  University of Pennsylvania, and University of Wisconsin.

Additional coverage is also reported in Colorlines.
